Frankly, it's only because the SR-2 (and all thicker rads) looks funky up top because of the it overhangs the MB. The GTS leaves the bottom looking a little empty. Purely aesthetics.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

So my Black Ice 360mm GTS arrived there is no indication which port is inlet and which is outlet, does that mean they can both be inlet or outlet?

Ah right, thanks.


I'm really struggling to decide what to do for a pump and res. A lot of people are critical of the EK stuff but i just dont like looks of the Monsoon MMRS or Heatkiller res.

Hi,
I have a total of 4 ek D5 pwm pumps
Two of which are pump reservoir combos and two are pwm top D5's
They are fine not sure what all the drama is about them they work perfectly about the only items ek did pretty well.

I prefer them because I can buy them locally at micro center where I can return if one... goes out with in store warranty instead of rma to Germany and 2-3-4 weeks down time.

There are far far more companies out there than just EK, Heatkiller, and Monsoon. Go get on the Aquatuning, Frozencpu or Performance PCs websites and look around at selection. I got my Aquacomputer Aqualis from Modmymods via Amazon as it was cheaper that day. You can find a lot of part diversity here.

A lot of people are critical and have their own preferred brands. That's the same with any company. Meanwhile, a lot of people happily run our pump/res combos without issue. There's not a whole lot aside from aesthetics that separates pump/res combos. Anything that use a true D5 pump are all going to be very similar. Pick based on looks and brand preferences or warranties and warranty support if there are some differences there.
